Amazing from start to finish

Choosing Amani Affairs was one of the best decisions we could have made. Jihan and Tiffany are knowledgeable, professional, and organized, their attention to detail is impeccable, even down to the smallest of details, the things we wouldn鈥檛 have thought of were planned out. Communication was easy and personable, they helped us stay on track throughout the planning process. We were asked for our opinions and were given options, they wanted our vision, and they didn鈥檛 try to take over or push anything on us. Choosing Amani Affairs is possibly the difference between having a good day, or the best day of your life. It's been almost a month since our wedding, and our guests still tell us how our wedding was one of the most beautiful and organized weddings they have been to. Thank you, Amani Affairs, for giving us the wedding of our dreams!!!

Amani Affairs is organized, hard working, and dedicated to the work they do.

Amani Affairs is amazing to work with! Their dedication, hard work, and organization makes your special day perfect in every way imaginable. They help to make sure all of your wedding dreams come true especially the small details that make your day unique. They are so well connected in the locations that they work in that they can immediately help you find a vendor for anything you want at your wedding from Carolina blue tablecloths to popcorn as a late night snack. Amani Affairs made me feel relaxed and comfortable on my wedding day!

Simply Amazing - the best of the best

Amani affairs is simply the best. We utilized their services for month of and day of coordination, but Jihan made sure we knew she was with us from the beginning, checking in to make sure we were on task and not panicking. The team at Amani affairs is professional and on point, the ladies who coordinated our day did not come to play any games, and made sure everything flowed exactly the way we all intended for it to. Their extra personal touches on decorations and last minute put togethers made everything come together flawlessly. I am beyond blessed to have had these women be a part of our day and help keep me sane, they are worth their weight in gold and then some!
